Award Shortlist   

It's all in the detail

By NDODS    
Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comments and votes following yesterdays upload. A further mention going to: Lottiesphotography(Charlie) Nigevel(Nigel) MrsBass(Heather) and Craggwildlife(David) for presenting me with their coveted User Awards.

Todays upload is again something outside of my comfort zone, however it is something which I rather like, especially the range of blue and grey like hues.

I hope that you all have a wonderful day ahead, for me I am off to see the shrink in Sevenoaks, so I shall be out for a little while. However I shall endeavour to view and comment on as many of your images as possible before bedtime.

Regards as always NathanGrinGrinGrin

Excellent dof, Nathan, and the blue hues are beautiful. Carol
The wide open lens has given a crisp shallow layer of focus and the blues are as ever beautiful.
Lovely image Nathan.

An abstract of tone and texture, the narrow dof works really well, Nathan.

What a stunning image Nathan, love your shallow dof and colours are great....well captured
Colour tone is definitely the main theme of this capture and does not distract from focus in fact the
blue inhances the fibre of the rope!. Well done Nathan.

The first thing to worry about is the focus..and that is spot on. The next thing to worry about are the colour and tones...and they are spot. In fact I would say the image is spot.

20 Aug 2013 8:21PM
Love macro shots , this one is very interesting , the colour is very cool an the detail in the focus plain is perfectly sharp . It's a shot of something that normally should not be interesting , but by zoning into a macro shot it totally is , well done Nathan , kind regards Kel
